A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole website or just a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. In case you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website 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 every website hosting package which we provide, you shall be able to shield any content that you have in your account with simply a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include a number of 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 our company, you will 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 a part of, so you shall not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be activated instantly, so anyone who tries to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the right login details. If various people have to be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
