An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
