.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
