.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 manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they work.
