A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole site or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to input a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
All of our Linux hosting packages include a very handy tool which will enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be turned on instantly, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login details. You can create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if required. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to activate the function with several mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you'll need to type the newly created login credentials 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 anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
