.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized 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 on. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they operate.
