A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole Internet site or simply one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you have to input a username and a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each and every website hosting
plan which we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have within your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you shall be all set. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not need to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then 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 shall be activated immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to enter the accurate login info. If a number of individuals must be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
