.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it must manage requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
