.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
