.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla 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 specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
