.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it should manage requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of widespread scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your website, for example, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password in order to see the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your sites and the way they perform.
