.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting 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, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
