.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You can 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, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
