.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should address requests when a website 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 lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
