.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
