.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to see 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, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
