.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they function.
