.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order to see 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, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
