A lot of commonly used scripts such as WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file.

You can also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file shall give you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they operate.
