.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts such as 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 certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
