.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they function.
