.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it has to 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 considerable amount 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 visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting 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, etc. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your sites and the way they operate.
