A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or simply a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of 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 the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with each and every shared hosting plan that we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you will be set. A small 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 add multiple 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 Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection shall be turned on immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to enter the accurate login details. When various individuals must be able to open the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
