A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire website or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to see the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing 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
With the password protection tool supplied with each shared hosting package deal which we provide, you'll be able to shield any content that you have within your account with simply a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it has exactly the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside 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 will be set. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to add a number of 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'll be able to create password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the feature with a few mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which needs to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you will have to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you will 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 details with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
