.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as 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 particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
