A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be a whole site or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and a password. If you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login details aren't right, however, you'll see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very effective if you'd like 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 prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer, you will be able to protect any content which you have within your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you will be ready. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add several 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 Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You will only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be enabled right away, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the accurate login information. In cases where a number of people must be able to access the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
