A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every single cloud web hosting package deal which we provide, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features the 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 will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you will be all set to go. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add multiple 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

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll 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's part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in the web hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be switched on straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the right login details. When various individuals must be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
