A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be a whole site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each and every shared hosting package that we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you will be all set to go. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to enable the feature with a few mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantly, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will need to type the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders with ease.
