.htaccess is a small text file that's installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must handle requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your Internet 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 sites and the way they operate.
