htaccess on shared hosting

Hi everybody,
This is my htaccess file on a shared environment.
It seems working, but I will be happy to hear if I miss anything. Any suggestions?
Thank you.

How are we to know if you missed anything? If it seems to be working then what is the problem?

Then a comment about the security issue will make me happy :)
Or to hear that the code seems secure and efficient is sufficent.
Thank you

You don't really have any security issues with .htaccess - as along as no one can access it and change it.
It cannot be viewed in a browser (by default anyway)
Mainly all you are doing in the .htaccess is rewriting urls/blocking ips etc

So nothing to worry about.
If you want to be paranoid

As you are on shared hosting most security precautions are already taken care of for you.
