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