.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
