To redirect the index.html file to the main URL using .htaccess, you can use the following code:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^index.html$ / [R=301,L]

This code uses the RewriteEngine module to enable URL rewriting. The RewriteRule directive with a regular expression ^index.html$ matches any requests for the index.html file. The R=301 flag indicates a permanent redirect, and the L flag stops any further rules from being processed.

The / in the replacement string represents the main URL that you want to redirect to. Replace it with your desired URL if needed.

Save the .htaccess file and upload it to the root directory of your website, where the index.html file is located. Any requests for index.html will now redirect to the main URL.
