A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or just a single 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 will have to input a username and a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely 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 Cloud Web Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every cloud web hosting package deal which we offer, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with just a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set to go. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to include numerous 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
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to shield any content which you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be enabled straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to input the accurate login details. When several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
