.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
