.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
