.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
