You can use this type of a file with personalized content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain sites from accessing your site, set personalized error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, forward a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area plus more.
