.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your sites and the way they perform.
