.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your websites and the way they perform.
