.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
