.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order 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, etc. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
