As you may aware one.com is a reliable hosting company with an affordable price. If you are a Drupal developer and trying to install Drupal on your one.com server, after uploading the file you are welcomed by an error message

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, support@one.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

In order to solve this you have to do a simple modification in .htacces file

Open your .htaccess file in a text editor

After the first few lines you will see two lines starting options, basically comment them by adding # sign before that

EARLIER
# Don't show directory listings for URLs which map to a directory.
Options -Indexes

# Follow symbolic links in this directory.
Options +FollowSymLinks

AFTER COMMENTING
# Don't show directory listings for URLs which map to a directory.
#Options -Indexes

# Follow symbolic links in this directory.
#Options +FollowSymLinks

Upload the .htaccess file to the root of your drupal directory

Now load your drupal and start configuring!!
