.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
