.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when a 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 a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding 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 on. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your sites and the way they operate.
