A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be a whole website or simply one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and also a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every single hosting package deal which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content that you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you'll be all set to go. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include many 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 shall be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder must 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 will be all set. The protection will be enabled immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the accurate login info. When various people have to be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
