.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom 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 will give you far more control over your sites and the way they work.
