.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your sites and the way they function.
