An .htaccess file is a text file that contains directives which tell a server how to behave in specific situations. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to function correctly - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that will appear rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, create a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.

The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with our website hosting plans and any option within it can be allowed by picking acheckbox and eventually by inputting a username or a URL, depending on what exactly you want to do with the .htaccess file. You may also decide where the file should be created, so you shall not need to do anything by hand after or before that.
