.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, 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 Internet sites and the way they operate.
