.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made 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 gives you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
