.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
