What can you do to control access to parts of your site? What is an .htaccess generator?
.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the guest to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
