A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must input a username and also a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each and every shared web hosting
plan which we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. Since the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features 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 have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you'll be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server
account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
