.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 address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
