.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use customized 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 offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
