In most cases, a web server running the Apache Web Server software’s behaviour is configured using a htaccess file. A htaccess file is a simple text file that sits in the root directory of a website site and it is used to enable and/or disable Apache’s features and functions, including redirect functionality on a site by site level. That allows for multiple sites on the same server to have different configurations.
If you’re looking to perform bulk redirects to generate apache htaccess redirects efficiently, Redirectly automatically matches old URLs to new URLs, so that it’s easy to drag and drop any URLs that have changed - creating a list of 301 redirects that can be exported for htaccess and Apache. There's no need for spreadsheets!
