An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your web presence.
