.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they operate.
