A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be an entire website or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you want to limit 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 Shared Hosting
When you use any of our shared hosting solutions, you'll be able to set up password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Every secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what's not. If required, you may create several different sets of login details for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to activate the feature with a few mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you'll have to input the newly created login details before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders with ease.
