.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Numerous commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you may block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting 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, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your sites and the way they function.
