.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
