.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
