An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to act in specific situations. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ this kind of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your web presence.
