.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts such as 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 specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
