.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
