.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made 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 offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
