.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the web server how it must manage requests when a site or a folder which is part of it is accessed. A lot of popular scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL forwarding or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file gives you significantly more control over your websites and the way they perform.
