An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives which tell a web server how to operate in specific occasions. It needs to be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven applications use such a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your presence online.
