.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized 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 websites and the way they operate.
