A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. In case you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you want to prohibit 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's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
If you use any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We have built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Every 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 is not. When necessary, you may create a number of sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to activate the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no problems, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you will need to type the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You will also 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 everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders with ease.
