.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
