.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to manage requests when a 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 instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use personalized 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.
