With an .htaccess file, you'll define how the web server which manages the requests to your websites must act a number of cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. For example, you could block a particular IP address from opening the Internet site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use custom error pages or preserve any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function efficiently.
.htaccess Generator in Shared Web Hosting
We have an easy-to-work-with .htaccess generator tool that will enable you to create and use such files with no difficulty even if you do not have 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 CP, which comes with our shared web hosting and any option within it may be enabled by selecting acheckbox and eventually by typing a username or a URL, based upon what exactly you need to do with the .htaccess file. You can also select where the file should be created, so you will not have to do anything manually after or before that. With an .htaccess file, you will also be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for a particular domain, even when it is not the same version as the one for the entire account.

Our semi-dedicated server solutions offer an .htaccess generator tool, that is easy enough to be used by people with zero previous experience.

Our platform will also permit you to set the PHP version which a site will use by putting an .htaccess file inside its root folder, no matter if your account in general uses a different version.
