.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
