.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made 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 much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
