An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to behave in particular cases. It must be put in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use such a file to operate properly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your web presence.
