An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a web server how to operate in certain situations. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. Many script-driven applications use this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with custom content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, forward a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.

We have an easy-to-use .htaccess generator tool which will allow you to create and use such files without any difficulty even if you don't have any previous experience and you do not know the syntax of the respective directives for this sort of a file. The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux website hosting and any option in it can be activated by selecting acheckbox and eventually by entering a username or a URL, based on what exactly you want to do with the .htaccess file. You may also choose where the file should be created, so you won't have to do anything manually after or before that. Through an .htaccess file, you will also be able to pick the PHP version that'll be active for a given domain, no matter if it's not the same version as the one for the whole account.
