.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
