.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your sites and the way they work.
