.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside 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's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your sites and the way they work.
