An .htaccess file is a text file which incorporates directives which tell a web server how to behave in certain events. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, an entire network or specific websites from accessing your site, set customized error pages that shall appear rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, set up a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have much better control over your online presence.

The tool is part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux shared hosting and any option within it may 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 won't have to do anything by hand after or before that.
