.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in 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 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 may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your sites and the way they perform.
