Find out just what an .htaccess generator is and what it will do for your site.
.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly inside a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the web server how it must address requests when a site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. Many popular scripts including Joomla™ and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your site, for instance, you could block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party sites, or you may request the visitor to enter a username and a password in order to see the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file gives you much more control over your websites and the way they perform.

The tool is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting and any option in it could be activated by choosing acheckbox and eventually by inputting a username or a URL, depending on what exactly you intend to do with the .htaccess file. You could also select where the file should be created, so you will not have to do anything by hand after or before that.
