An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Loads of script-driven applications employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your presence online.
