.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, 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 in order to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they function.
