A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or just a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type a username and also a password. In case you type the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you want to restrict 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 before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every single shared hosting package deal which we offer, you shall be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set to go. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not have to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be turned on right away, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to enter the correct login details. When several individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
