.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
