An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It must be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this type of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites 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, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
