What is an .htaccess file?

An .htaccess file is an HTML associated file that allows you to control the way some Web servers respond to file requests (by creating an .htaccess file in your Web directory or one of its sub-directories).

An .htaccess file contains one or more server directives. Directives are small commands known by the server, that tell the server how to behave. For more information on how to use this file, contact your FTP Host or webmaster. Please consult the following links for further information on .htaccess files.
