.htaccess is a small text file that is installed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the web server how it should address requests when a website or a folder which is part of it is accessed. Lots of famous scripts including WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you'll be able to block the access of certain IP addresses and third-party websites, or you can request the guest to type in a username and a password to be able to see the content. You may also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you significantly more control over your websites and the way they work.
