We are happy to announce that new software, called .htaccess Generator, has been made available in the Web Hosting Control Panel. Its purpose is to allow you to create many widely used .htaccess file features.
Where is the .htaccess Generator?
You can find the .htaccess Generator in the new Elefante Administration Tools section in the Web Tools menu. The new section includes also the Hotlink Protection and IP Blocking tools that have been taken from the Elefante Marketing Tools section. If you want to create .htaccess files you can also go to the desired location using the Control panel’s File Manager and click the .htaccess button that is available there.
Where is the .htaccess Generator located?
We have developed this tool taking into account your need to create .htaccess files and the fact that these files are sometimes not functioning properly due to incorrect parameters. The new generator will create the files properly so that there will be no need for you to contact our Technical Support team with regard to problems of such kind. Of course, we are always ready to help if problems with malfunctioning .htaccess files hosted on our servers appear.
What features have been made available in the .htaccess Generator?
The features have been grouped in the following six sections depending on their purpose:
- default index page
- additional MIME types
- authentication – allows IP and password authentication
- mod_rewrite – allows host authentication, wrong URLs redirection to another web server, language-based redirection and blocking sites by referrer
- custom error documents – allows the setting up of custom Error 400, 401, 403, 404 and 500 pages, as well as document redirection to a new URL
- other options – allows the enabling of Server Side Includes (SSI), hotlinking protection and PHP inclusion in HTML files
How can you apply the generated .htaccess code?
As soon as the form has been completed and submitted, the .htaccess code is generated. For your convenience, the code is being displayed in a text box so that you may choose whether to add it to an existing .htaccess file, or to have the file created in the selected location.
We trust you will like the new tool, as we are always happy to make our services easier for you to use.
