.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
