.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
