.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to view 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, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
