.htaccess is an additional configuration file for the web server (Apache).
On the rental server, the setting file of the web server cannot be easily rewritten, but .htaccess functions as a file to be added to the setting file, and even on the rental server, you can change the settings within the range permitted by the user. It is possible.
It is mainly used for redirects and basic authentication, etc., and it is particularly effective at the timing of large-scale redirects that occur when transferring domains .
Please note that .htaccess is not permitted to be used on any rental server due to its nature.
