.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla 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 may request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they function.
