.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 has to address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized 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 far more control over your sites and the way they function.
