.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
