.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You may 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 much more control over your websites and the way they function.
