A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole site or simply one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see information that you are not allowed to see the content. If this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each and every shared hosting package deal which we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A small padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to enable the function with a number of mouse clicks and with no complications, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which needs to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you'll have to type in the newly created login credentials before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
