.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
