.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
