.htaccess is a small text file that is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when a website or a folder that is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™ 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 certain IP addresses and third-party sites, or you could request the guest to type in a username and a password to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use customized 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 shall give you much more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
