You should just google this. You will find more than you will ever want to know about it that way. You do not need it no, but if you are using apache server you can do a lot with it....

Sorry, it has absolutely nothing to do with the size of the site.
Please feel some responsibility for your answers. Sometimes a small inaccurate fragment of an answer can easily distract or confuse some naive readers, causing big waste of time.
