.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting 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 gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
