.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they operate.
