.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
