.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites 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 websites and the way they work.
