.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should manage requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom 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 shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
