.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
