.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites 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 websites and the way they function.
