.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use personalized 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 websites and the way they function.
