.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made 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 shall give you much more control over your websites and the way they function.
