.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
