.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
