.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could 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 offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they perform.
