.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
