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