.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your sites and the way they operate.
