An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in certain situations. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
