A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire site or simply one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to look at the content. When this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every single website hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it provides the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you'll be all set. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include numerous 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 Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to activate the function with a few clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that 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 try to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll need to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need 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 this type of folders effortlessly.
