An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to act in particular cases. It must be positioned in the folder in which these directives should be executed. Loads of script-driven apps use such a file to operate correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this type of a file with custom made content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or particular websites from accessing your site, set custom error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.

The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting services and any option in it could be enabled by picking acheckbox and eventually by inputting a username or a URL, depending on what exactly you want to do with the .htaccess file. You could also choose where the file should be created, so you will not need to do anything by hand after or before that.
