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