.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
