Numerous widespread scripts such as Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file.

You could also set up URL forwarding or use customized error pages for your site, prevent other Internet sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.
