An .htaccess file is a file you can use in your account to tweak certain features of the web hosting software to better tailor your website. Some features include blocking IPs, preventing hotlinking, setting directory passwords, custom error messages such as 404 pages, changing the default index file, forcing use of SSL, blocking directory indexing and much much more!
