.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
