.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
