.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
