Publii doesn’t require an htaccess file, I think you most likely want to optimize page load times so there’s a lot to do, you can enable gzip compression, enable browser caching, etc … overall it’s a very broad topic. I suggest you use Google and read some articles about it e.g. https://gist.github.com/rqreyes/df9e27b25eb874cef4ac
