.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom 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 significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
