An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific situations. It should be placed in the folder where these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages which 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 different web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you will have much better control over your presence online.
