.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
