.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it should handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of widely used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may 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, and so forth. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
