Hello Guys,

What is an .htaccess file

An .htaccess file is a simple ASCII file that you create with a text editor. It offers a means to make configuration changes on a per-directory basis. .htaccess files affect the directory in which they are located and all sub-directories.

For instance, if there is one .htaccess file located in your root directory of, it would affect,, and so on.


With an .htaccess file you can do:-
  • Redirect the user to different page
  • Password protect a specific directory
  • Block users by IP
  • Preventing hot linking of your images
  • Rewrite URIs
  • Specify your own Error Documents

I hope this post will help you to understand .htaccess file configuration.

Enjoy !!
