.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress 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 websites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding 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, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
