.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your sites and the way they operate.
