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