An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in certain events. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
