An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a web server how to operate in certain occasions. It needs to be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Numerous script-driven apps employ such a file to work correctly - 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 particular Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have significantly better control over your web presence.
