An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives which tell a server how to act in specific events. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized 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 different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
