.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
