With an .htaccess file, you'll determine how the web server that manages the requests to your Internet sites must act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are executed when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. For instance, you could block a certain IP address from accessing the Internet site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You can also use tailor-made error pages or secure any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.

We have an easy-to-use .htaccess generator tool which will allow you to set up and use such files without any difficulties even if you don't have any previous experience and you do not know the syntax of the respective directives for this type of a file. The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with our cloud web hosting and any option in it can be enabled by choosing acheckbox and eventually by entering a username or a URL, based on what exactly you would like to do with the .htaccess file. You may also decide where the file should be created, so you will not need to do anything by hand after or before that. Through an .htaccess file, you'll be able to pick the PHP version that'll be enabled for a particular domain, even when it isn't the same version as the one for the whole account.
