An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to operate in particular cases. It needs to be put in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven applications use this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with customized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your web presence.
