.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
