.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they function.
