.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads 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 can request the guest to enter a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
