.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites 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 Internet sites and the way they perform.
