.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
