.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
