.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party 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 redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
