.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should handle requests when an Internet site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your websites and the way they operate.
