An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to act in certain cases. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps use this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will show up 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 and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have more effective control over your web presence.
