A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This may be a whole site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. If you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login details aren't right, however, you'll see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you wish 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 Hosting
If you use any of our cloud hosting products, you shall be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you may create a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to create password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and with no complications, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you'll need to type the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
