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