A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to input a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. When the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each and every hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated 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 you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will 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 Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be turned on right away, so anyone that attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to enter the correct login info. If several individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
