.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file.

You could also set up URL forwarding 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, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
