.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they operate.
