.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
