.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
