.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding 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 will give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
