An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a server how to operate in particular situations. It must be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
