.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
