A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you wish to prohibit 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 prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every hosting package deal that we provide, you shall be able to protect any content that you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you want and you'll be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not need to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be switched on right away, so anyone who attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login details. When various people must be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
