.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized 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 offers you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
