.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting 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 gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
