I hope someone can help me.

I have the issue that my .htaccess files does not work. Because if I upload the htaccess file, then my websites (2 domains = 1 server) are down / offline and I can only see the error message 404 page not found, if i enter the URL in the browser.

I bought the websites with a .htaccess file. The seller uploaded all the files to the file manager. And it worked, but if I do change something and reupload it then it does not work. I always use notepad to change the .htaccess file, and I do use hostgator as a host provider (shared server, dedicated IP). Do you know why I can only see the 404 error?
Without .htaccess file, the websites work...

Thank you in advance for your help.
