.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
