.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they work.
