.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your sites and the way they operate.
