.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your sites and the way they operate.
