A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be an entire site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting include a really handy tool that will enable you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be active instantly, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login credentials. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Securing any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to choose the exact folder you'd like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you'll need to type shall be the username and the password that will be used to access it later on. You will not encounter any complications even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you'll be able to create different usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders very easily either in exactly the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their little padlock icons.
