.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
