An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a server how to act in particular occasions. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. Many script-driven apps use this type of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that shall appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
