An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with personalized content as well and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
