A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or just 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 in which you will have to type a username as well as a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single cloud hosting package deal that we provide, you will be able to secure any content that you have in your account with simply a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it has the exact same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you'll be set. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to add many 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

When 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 simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to select which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be enabled straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to enter the right login details. If several individuals must be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
