.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
