.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made 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 gives you far more control over your websites and the way they work.
