.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
