    To prevent access from some common 'bots' and site rippers you need to create a htaccess file in your main directory


    What is .htaccess file?

    .htaccess is a configuration file for use on web servers running the Apache Web Server software.


    How to use it?

    Create a '.htaccess' file in text editor such as dreamweave, notepad++, sublime text and place it in your main director something like 'public_html' or 'www' or where you upload your website.

    Note : You have to save it as .htaccess without any extension/name.
