.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized 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 a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
