.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
