.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
