A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or just a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing 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
When you use any of our web hosting plans, you shall be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We have built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you may create a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to activate the feature with a few clicks and without any complications, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will have to input 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 will not have to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
