.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla 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 sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
