An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps employ such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that shall appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
