.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
