A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be an entire website or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with every hosting package deal which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has exactly the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to include 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
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be activated at once, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the accurate login details. In case various people must be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
