.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
