Accessing Your .htaccess File By Domain

  1. Log into the Account Control Center (ACC)
  2. Click Domains in the left sidebar
  3. Click Manage Your Domain Names in the drop-down
  4. Under Domain Name, click the name of the domain you would like to work on

Accessing Your .htaccess File By Directory

If the directory already has an .htaccess file, open it by:

    • Image of .htaccess file
  2. Clicking Edit on the top toolbar
    • Edit button location on toolbar image

If the directory does not have an .htaccess file, create it by:

    1. Clicking New File on the top toolbar 
      • New File button location image
    2. In the first box, input “.htaccess”

Remember to include the period at the beginning of .htaccess. Otherwise, the file will not work.
