.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like 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 certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made 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 significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
