.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your websites and the way they function.
