An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your web presence.
