.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
