An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives that tell a web server how to act in certain situations. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be carried out. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will show up rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your presence online.
