.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest 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 website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they function.
