An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
