.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
