.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
