.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can 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, etc. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
