.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
