.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to inform the server how it has to handle requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to input a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your Internet site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file will give you a lot more control over your websites and the way they perform.
