.htaccess is a small text file which is installed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it should address requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your Internet site, for instance, you can 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 in order to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your websites and the way they work.
