.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
