.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
