.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ 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 certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
