.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized 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 gives you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
