A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be a whole site or just one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and also a password. If you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
When you use any of our hosting products, you can create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not. When necessary, you may create several different sets of login details for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be activated right away, so anyone who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to input the correct login information. When a number of individuals have to be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
