Hypertext Access, commonly shortened to .htaccess, is a configuration file which super controls the directory it is placed in and all the subdirectories underneath it.
The .htaccess (do note the period in front of the file name) permits webmasters to control many aspects of their website. Page redirects, page extension changes, password protecting directories and more. Hence, the .htaccess file which is used on Apache based web servers can super control features of Apache.
.htaccess itself is a basic text file (i.e. A pure ASCII file). This can be created on your local machine using your favorite programming editor and then uploaded to the root directory of the virtual domain, under Apache whose contents must be controlled.
