.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts including 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 certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized 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 significantly more control over your websites and the way they work.
