.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your sites and the way they operate.
