A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be a whole site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must type in a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. When the login details aren't right, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each hosting package deal which we provide, you shall be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with just a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password you want and you will be all set to go. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to activate the feature with a few clicks and with no difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you will need to type in the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
