An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in specific events. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
