.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
