.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other 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 websites and the way they perform.
