.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could 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, etc. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
