A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be an entire website or simply a single page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. In case the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you wish to limit 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 Website Hosting
All our Linux website hosting services include a very convenient tool which will allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which must be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated straightaway, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login info. You may create or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be activated instantly, so anyone that tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the right login information. If various individuals must be able to access precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
