.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see 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, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
