.htaccess Generator with NTC Hosting
The .htaccess Generator coming with all NTC Hosting packages quickly generates the necessary .htaccess code and creates the corresponding file in the chosen directory of your hosting account. Using this tool you can specify additional MIME types, set access restrictions, re-write web page URLs, and much more.
The .htaccess generator interface is a very intuitive one – it's divided into several sections, depending on what you want to achieve – redirect pages, restrict access to your website using password protection, etc. All you have to do is select what you wish to do and fill in the needed information.
For example, if you wish to set another file to be opened once the web page is reached, instead of the standard index.html or index.php, there is a very easy way to do it.
All you have to do is enable the needed option in the .htaccess generator menu and fill in the new file, which should be used as an index file. You can also specify a series of files using comas. This way, if the first file is missing, the second one will be opened. From the top field you can select where the .htaccess file should be generated.
You can even perform Hotlink Protection for your website's multimedia files, or allow PHP to be executed in HTML files.
All you need to do is tick off the respective checkbox and generate the needed .htaccess file.
