.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it should address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may 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, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
