.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You could 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, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they operate.
