An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a server how to operate in specific events. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven applications employ this type of a file to work properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have far better control over your online presence.
