.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized 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 gives you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
