A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This may be an entire website or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must input a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take just a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with us. You won't need to do anything difficult - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of people require their own login details, there won't be a problem to make a variety of different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is activated. If you would like to disable the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the web hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be switched on at once, so anyone that tries to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the correct login information. When several individuals should be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
