An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a server how to behave in certain cases. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps use this kind of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall show up rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
