.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting 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, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
