An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives that tell a web server how to act in specific events. It needs to be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed.

You can use such a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall be displayed rather than 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 more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
