.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
