.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor 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 Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your sites and the way they perform.
