.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
