.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your websites and the way they function.
