.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage 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 Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
