.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you much more control over your websites and the way they operate.
