.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the web server how it has to address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you can request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding 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 shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
