.htaccess is a small text file which is located either directly in a domain folder or in a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla use an .htaccess file. If you get a great deal of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you can request the visitor to input a username and a password to be able to view the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your Internet site, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etcetera. An .htaccess file offers you a lot more control over your Internet sites and the way they perform.

.htaccess Generator in Web Hosting

If you want to use any of the functions an .htaccess file offers, but you've never dealt with such matters before, you can use the .htaccess generator tool included with all our web hosting packages. The tool is part of our in-house built Hepsia CP and it will provide you with a simple and intuitive means to create an .htaccess file inside any folder you have created inside the account. Many options will be available with checkboxes, so you should only select the one which you need and eventually type a URL - if you are using the file to forward a domain or to set custom error pages for each of your sites. Because our cloud platform supports a number of different PHP versions, you'll also be able to set any of these versions for any of your sites even when it's different from the version set for your Internet hosting account as a whole.

.htaccess Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans feature an .htaccess generator tool, which is easy enough to be used by people with no previous experience. You'll be able to access it via your Hepsia CP and benefit from an easy-to-use interface to activate any option you want. After you select the folder where our system will set up the .htaccess file, you only need to check the boxes beside the options you want to activate, then save the changes and you'll be all set. The only thing you'll have to type manually will be a URL - if you need to use the .htaccess file to forward one of your domains/subdomains to an alternative address or if you would like to use customized error pages. Our platform will also allow you to set the PHP version that an Internet site will use by placing an .htaccess file inside its root folder, regardless if your account in its entirety uses a different version.
