.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
