.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they perform.
