.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they operate.
