A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating 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
Creating a password-protected area will take only several clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account with our company. You shall not have to do anything challenging - you'll need to select a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be secured, and then to input the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of people need their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to set up a variety of different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is enabled. If you would like to disable the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder must 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'll be all set. The protection will be activated immediately, so anyone that attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the correct login details. In cases where a number of individuals should be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
