An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in particular events. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your web presence.
