.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it should address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
