.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom 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 offers you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
