.htaccess is a small text file that is located 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 that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
