.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites 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 websites and the way they work.
