.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites 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 sites and the way they work.
