.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
