.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to be able to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
