A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be a whole website or just a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you wish 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 Website Hosting
When you use any of our website hosting packages, you can set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We have included a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you can make a number of sets of login credentials for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you shall not need to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be switched on at once, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to enter the right login information. In cases where various people have to be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
