A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or only one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must type a username and also a password. If you type the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
When you use any of our website hosting packages, you'll be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We've included an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Every secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you can create a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be turned on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to type in the accurate login details. In cases where several individuals should be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
