.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
