    I'm confused on this.. I want to set up a HTAccess file to re-direct but how do I make it or set it up? Is it a file I have to manually make, is it a file I have to edit or what is it?

    How exactly do I set it up or make one?

    You can create your own - most ready made sites like WP, Joomla etc come with one.
    To create your own ask the question or hit Gooooooogle :)

    if you use godaddy try the mod rewrite method instead of straight redirect

    I've created a text file and labeled it .htaccess but I can only see it if I view my directory through Filezilla.

    Also, I'm using Host Gator.
