.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous 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 may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom 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 gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
