An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives that tell a web server how to act in particular situations. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven applications use such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with custom content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.
