.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
