.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
