A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with every web hosting package deal that we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have within your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set to go. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be activated instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login information. When several people must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
