.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
