.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they work.
