An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in specific cases. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to operate efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do a wide range of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, redirect a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have far better control over your world-wide web presence.
.htaccess Generator in Shared Web Hosting
We have a time and effort saving .htaccess generator tool that will permit you to create and use this type of files without any trouble even if you don't have any previous experience and you do not know the syntax of the specific directives for this type of a file. The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared web hosting and any option in it may be allowed by choosing acheckbox and eventually by entering a username or a URL, based on what exactly you need to do with the .htaccess file. You can also decide where the file should be created, so you will not have to do anything manually before or after that. By using an .htaccess file, you will also be able to pick the PHP version which will be enabled for a particular domain, even when it's not the same version as the one for the whole account.

Our semi-dedicated server solutions provide an .htaccess generator tool, that's easy enough to be used by people without previous experience. You'll be able to access it using your Hepsia CP and benefit from a user-friendly interface to enable any option you'd like. Once you select the folder in which our system will set up the .htaccess file, you only need to check the boxes next to the options you want to activate, then save the changes and you'll be set. The only thing you will have to type in by hand will be a URL - if you'd like to use the .htaccess file to redirect one of your domains/subdomains to an alternative address or if you want to use custom error pages. Our platform will also permit you to set the PHP version that an Internet site will use by adding an .htaccess file in its root folder, even when your account as a whole uses a different version.
