.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
