.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
