A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be a whole website or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything additional. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you'd like 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's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with every cloud hosting package that we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not have to write any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to type in the correct login details. When various people must be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
