.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
