An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to operate in certain occasions. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use this type of a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your web presence.
