.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input 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 website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your sites and the way they perform.
