    Enabling mod_expires with Your Hosting Account

    <p>Help > Web & Classic Hosting > Enabling mod_expires with Your Hosting Account says:</p>

    <blockquote>Because we do not enable mod_expires at the global level, you need to enable it in your .htaccess file.</blockquote>

     <p>How does one do that?</p>

    <p>Thanks,</p>

    <p>Mark</p>

    Hmmm. I typed that in HTML and yet it's showing the HTML code. Strange.

    I learned by bouncing around the interwebs that the easiest way to do it is via FTP:

    • Use an FTP client such as FileZilla
    • Copy-and-paste the code (I can't write such code, e.g., JavaScript, but I've had others give me the code in various scenarios), into a text editor such as Atom (my fav) - do not use Word, Wordpad, or Notepad.
    • Name the file: .htacess - that is it, no extension and with a period at the front.
    • Upload the file to your root directory.

    That's it, although keep in mind I am not a professional web developer or IT expert by any means. That is simply a simple laymen's explanation.
