.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your sites and the way they perform.
