.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it must manage requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widely used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your sites and the way they function.
