.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
