.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your websites and the way they perform.
