.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet 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 type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
