.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they perform.
