.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
