.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
