.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you much more control over your websites and the way they perform.
