An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to behave in particular occasions. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your web presence.
