.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
