.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites 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 Internet sites and the way they function.
