.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of 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 instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, 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 Internet sites and the way they work.
