.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites 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 function.
