.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom 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 on. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
