.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your sites and the way they function.
