.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to manage requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they work.
