.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla 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 particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You may 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, etc. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
