.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your sites and the way they operate.
