.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to manage requests when a 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 instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
