.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could 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, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
