.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must 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 website, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
