.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor 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 Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your websites and the way they operate.
