.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
