An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives that tell a web server how to act in specific events. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be executed. Many script-driven applications use this sort of a file to perform correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this kind of a file with custom made content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your online presence.
