.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside 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 commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to input 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 Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
