.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
