.htaccess is a small text file that's placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it must address requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many widely used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a lot of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party Internet sites, or you may request the guest to type in a username and a password to view the content. You may also set up URL forwarding or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, etc. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your sites and the way they perform.

.htaccess Generator in Shared Web Hosting

We have an intuitive .htaccess generator tool that will permit you to create and use this sort of files with no trouble even if you have no previous experience and you do not know the syntax of the particular directives for such a file. The tool is part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared web hosting plans and any option inside it can be activated by selecting acheckbox and eventually by entering a username or a URL, based upon what exactly you intend to do with the .htaccess file. You can also decide where the file should be created, so you will not have to do anything by hand before or after that. With an .htaccess file, you'll be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for a given domain, even when it isn't the same version as the one for the whole account.

.htaccess Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer an .htaccess generator tool, that's easy enough to be used by people with zero previous experience. You'll be able to access it through your Hepsia CP and use a user-friendly interface to enable any option you need. After you select the folder where our system will create the .htaccess file, you only need to check the boxes next to the options that you would like to enable, then save the changes and you shall be ready.

Our platform will also enable you to set the PHP version which a site will use by adding an .htaccess file within its root folder, regardless if your account in its entirety uses a different version.
