.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
