.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
