An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific cases. It should be positioned in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven apps use such a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla™, for instance. 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 Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your world-wide web presence.
