.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they work.
