.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your sites and the way they operate.
