.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your 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 far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
