.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
