.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your 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 websites and the way they perform.
