A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or just a single page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each and every shared hosting
package that we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you'll be ready. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server
account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to activate the function with a number of mouse clicks and without any complications, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to input the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders with ease.
