.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
