.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your websites and the way they perform.
