.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they operate.
