.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
