.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, 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 customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
