A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be a whole site or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details are not right, however, you'll see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting plans come with a very handy tool that will allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be active right away, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login info. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection shall be switched on straightaway, so anybody who tries to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the accurate login info. In cases where a number of individuals should be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
