.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to enter 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 Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
