.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
