.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it has to address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you could 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 can also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
