.htaccess is a small text file that's placed 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's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting 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 much more control over your websites and the way they perform.
