.htaccess is a small text file which is 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 is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they work.
