An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in specific events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications employ such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with customized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will be displayed 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, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your web presence.
