.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting 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, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
