.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest 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 website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they function.
