.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your websites and the way they work.
