.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 should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
