.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
