.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your websites and the way they function.
