.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
