An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to operate in particular events. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps use such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case 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 much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.
