I need to understand how to manipulate the htaccess file for a website.
we are currently hosting a site at one location for quite some time. we redesigned our site and going to a different hosting company. I know the htaccess file is a key element to keep are rating for SEO.
my questions are the following:
1- is the htaccess file created has a limitation in size?
2-is the htaccess file needs to reside on the old hosting company or the new one?
3- I also have quite a few domain name pointing to my old hosting company , how do I handle the htaccess file for each one of those domain?
I am sorry I have tried to educate myself on how Htaccess file works but I didn't find a good site that explains how this whole htaccess file works.
any help will appreciate.
