A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be a whole site or simply one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will need to input a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. When this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with each hosting plan that we offer, you'll be able to protect any content which you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter 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 very same way you shall be able to add a number of 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
Protecting any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to select the exact folder which you want to protect with a couple of clicks and all you'll need to type in shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it later on. You'll not experience any complications even if you have not had a hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to activate the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up different usernames for the very 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 easily either in the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you will detect them by their small padlock icons.
