.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they perform.
