.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized 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 significantly more control over your sites and the way they work.
