An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a server how to act in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
