.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, 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 to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized 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 shall give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
