An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your presence online.
