.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your websites and the way they work.
