.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can 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 may also set up URL redirecting 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they function.
