An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla™, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
