.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
