.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You can 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, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
