.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made 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 will give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
