An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
