What could you do to restrict access to parts of your site? What is an .htaccess generator?
.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use customized 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 will give you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
