An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps use this kind of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will appear rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your presence online.
