.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
