.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, 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 websites and the way they function.
