A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be an entire site or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. When the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All of our Linux cloud packages include an incredibly handy tool that will enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that should be used to access the content in question. The feature shall be active instantly, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login details. You may set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to protect any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You will only need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be switched on straightaway, so anybody who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login details. In case various individuals should be able to open exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
