    Mainly .htaccess files are used to set up a 301 redirection from non-www version to www version of your website to avoid the canonicalization issue.

    .htaccess file is mainly used to resolve canonical issue (www and non www version sites)and 301(permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection)

    Off course one can search on Google with ".htaccess" term but there are few who bother to read long lines of text (posts & articles) so they come to forums to get simple and brief answer to their questions.
