.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
