.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they perform.
