.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
