A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. If the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite handy if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take only several mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a web hosting account with us. You'll not have to do anything complicated - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals require their own login details, there won't be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is activated. If you want to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield 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 shall not need to type in any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be enabled straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the freshly secured folder shall have to enter the correct login info. In cases where several individuals have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
