Locating and editing the '.htaccess' file
Updated Friday February 5th 2021 / Category Web Hosting

The .htaccess file is used to make adjustments to how your hosting responds to various requests, most commonly redirecting to the secure HTTPS version of your URL for example.

‘Dotfiles’ are hidden by default in cPanel’s file manager but can be easily enabled by navigating to the cPanel then File manager app, and finally the settings tab at the top right where you can click Show Hidden Files (dotfiles).

The .htaccess will now display in your sites root folder (for the primary domain this is the Public_HTML folder) you can edit the file by right-clicking and selecting edit.
