.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
