.htaccess is a small text file which is located 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 widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see 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, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
