An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular events. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications use this type of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your online presence.
