.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your websites and the way they work.
