.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made 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 offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
