What is a .htacess file

An htaccess file is a hidden file found in your public_html* folder on your hosting domain server. As far as I know, it is only available via Unix cPanel and not available on Windows hosting. It is a document that tells the server how to read pages, redirect links, how to publicly view the folders online, and so on.

*In some hosting cases, this folder is aslo known as htdocs.
