.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see 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, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they function.
