.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file.

You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
