.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, 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 much more control over your sites and the way they function.
