An .htaccess file is a text file that incorporates directives which tell a server how to behave in certain situations. It should be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be performed. Loads of script-driven apps employ such a file to function properly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.

.htaccess Generator in Website Hosting

We have an intuitive .htaccess generator tool that will permit you to create and use this type of files without any issues even if you don't have previous experience and you don't know the syntax of the particular directives for this kind of a file. The tool is part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with our website hosting and any option in it may be activated by choosing acheckbox and eventually by typing a username or a URL, based on what exactly you would like to do with the .htaccess file. You may also decide where the file should be created, so you shall not have to do anything by hand after or before that. Through an .htaccess file, you shall also be able to select the PHP version that will be active for a specific domain, even when it's not the same version as the one for the whole account.

.htaccess Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions offer an .htaccess generator tool, that's easy enough to be used by people without previous experience. You will be able to access it using your Hepsia Control Panel and benefit from a user-friendly interface to activate any option you'd like. Once you pick the folder where our system will set up the .htaccess file, you just have to check the boxes beside the options that you'd like to enable, then save the changes and you will be all set.
