.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
