A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be a whole site or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. If the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating 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 offer, you shall be able to protect any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features exactly the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include multiple 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 Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in 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 switched on immediately, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to type in the right login info. In cases where various individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
