.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made 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 gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
