.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
