.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
