.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
