.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to handle requests when a site or a folder that is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the guest to enter a username and a password to be able to see the content. You could 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, etc. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
