.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
