.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
