.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding 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, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
