.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
