.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
