.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you could 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 see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your sites and the way they function.
