An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives that tell a server how to act in particular situations. It must be put in the folder where these directives should be carried out. A lot of script-driven applications use this kind of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this sort of a file with custom made content as well and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, an entire network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have more effective control over your world-wide web presence.

.htaccess Generator in Cloud Hosting

We have an easy-to-use .htaccess generator tool which will allow you to set up and use such files without difficulties even if you have zero previous experience and you do not know the syntax of the particular directives for this type of a file. The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux cloud hosting packages and any option in it may be enabled by selecting acheckbox and eventually by typing a username or a URL, based upon what exactly you want to do with the .htaccess file. You could also select where the file should be created, so you won't have to do anything manually after or before that. By using an .htaccess file, you'll be able to choose the PHP version which will be enabled for a specific domain, even when it is not the same version as the one for the entire account.
