.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
