.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your sites and the way they perform.
