.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet 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 websites and the way they perform.
