.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet 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 sites and the way they perform.
