.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to inform the server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your Internet site, for example, you'll be able to block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You could also set up URL forwarding or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file gives you a lot more control over your websites and the way they work.
