.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
