.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they operate.
