.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
