.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
