.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized 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 far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
