.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your sites and the way they operate.
