.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they perform.
