.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to see 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
