.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, 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 to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your sites and the way they perform.
