How to use .htaccess and .htpasswd configuration files

How to use .htaccess configuration file.

On our shared web hosting servers your can use .htaccess and .htpasswd configuration files for some compatibility with Apache web projects. We use the Helicon Ape module for IIS Web Server.

It literally implements Apache configuration model and nearly all Apache modules in a single IIS add-on, not only making IIS compatible with Apache, but also extending it’s functionality by a number of highly essential features.

Includes following modules: mod_rewrite, mod_proxy, mod_auth, mod_gzip, mod_headers, mod_cache, mod_expires, mod_replace and others.

You can check all currently available modules in the compatibility chart and documentation:
