.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, 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 work.
