.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the web server how it must handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Numerous popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your websites and the way they operate.
