.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, 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 a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
