.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
