.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, 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 a lot more control over your websites and the way they operate.
