.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
