An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a server how to behave in specific situations. It needs to be positioned in the folder where these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall show up rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
