.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely 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 sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
