.htaccess is a small text file that's located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to guide the web server how it has to manage requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many commonly used scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your 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 enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they function.
