A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be a whole site or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. If you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see information that you are not permitted to view the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every single shared hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be ready. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and with no problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders with ease.
