.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can 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 be able to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
