.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
