.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in 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, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
