A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire website or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username and a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take merely a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites inside a cloud website hosting account with our company. You shall not have to do anything complex - you'll have to select a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to create several different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is active. If you would like to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be turned on immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to enter the correct login details. In cases where a number of people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
