.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
