.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to type in a username and a password to view the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your websites and the way they function.
