A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire site or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and also a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. When the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you want 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 before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take merely a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites within a website hosting
account with our company. You will not need to do anything complex - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be protected, and then to input the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to make numerous different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is active. If you would like to turn off the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you will be able to shield any content you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be activated straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the right login details. When several people have to be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
