.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
