.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites 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 sites and the way they perform.
