An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to behave in particular events. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your presence online.
