A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to view 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 option is incredibly handy if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with every single cloud website hosting package which we provide, you'll be able to secure any content that you have in your account with merely a few clicks. Because the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within 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 that you want and you'll be set. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add 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 Servers
Securing any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia CP, will allow you to choose the exact folder that you want to protect with a couple of clicks and all you'll have to type will be the username and the password which will be used to access it subsequently. You will not encounter any problems even if you have not had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to set up different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the protected folders at a glance either in the exact same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you shall detect them by their small padlock icons.
