.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
