.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made 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 gives you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
