.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
