.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
