.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could 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 to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your websites and the way they operate.
