.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized 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 will give you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
