.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's part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your websites and the way they operate.
