A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be a whole site or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
All of our web hosting include an exceptionally handy tool which will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on at once, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login info. You may set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to switch on the feature with several clicks and with no complications, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that needs to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you try to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to type in the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
