.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
