.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they operate.
