.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites 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 Internet sites and the way they perform.
