.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your sites and the way they work.
