Hmm, not up on this one but if I recall .htacess is for stopping users 
getting to get into specific directories without user/pass rather than 
banning them from the site altogether.
If you don't want domains and IP's to visit ANY of your site its somewhere 
else in Linux, more of a firewall or apache config area rather than 
htacess - else you
would need to put a htacess file in EVERY directory on the site which is 
impracticable -could be hundreds.
