.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made 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 shall give you far more control over your websites and the way they work.
