.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts including 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 particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized 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 will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
