.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet 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 Internet sites and the way they operate.
