.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you far more control over your websites and the way they function.
