.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
