.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could 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, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they perform.
