An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in certain situations. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made 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 made error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
