.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla 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 certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
