.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
