A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or only a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and a password. In case you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. If the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
When you use any of our hosting packages, you shall be able to create password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each 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. When necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you'll not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be switched on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the newly protected folder shall have to input the accurate login information. If several individuals must be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
