.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom 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 function.
