.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your sites and the way they operate.
