.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
