.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
