An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives that tell a server how to operate in certain cases. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven applications use such a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this type of a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your online presence.
