What are these htaccess files that keep popping up?

.htaccess files are default files the server uses to perform certain tasks. Features such as password protecting directories, custom 404 pages, mime types and others all use .htacess files. They are pretty common and you have nothing to worry about. .htaccess files may be left alone in your account.
