.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly inside a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widespread scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to input a username and a password in order to view the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
