.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file.

You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized 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 shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
