.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may 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, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your websites and the way they function.
