.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
