.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside 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. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they operate.
