.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
