.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could 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 gives you a lot more control over your sites and the way they function.
