.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the 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 lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized 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 offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
