.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding 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 gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
