.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized 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 much more control over your websites and the way they perform.
