.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
