What can you do to be able to restrict access to parts of your website? What?s an .htaccess generator?
.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™ use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
