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