An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific situations. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with custom content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
