.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, 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 websites and the way they work.
