.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder which 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 can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
