.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they operate.
