.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous widely used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
