A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be a whole website or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each and every shared web hosting package deal that we provide, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with merely a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you will be all set to go. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include 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

Securing any folder with a password will be very simple if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that's incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to select the specific folder which you want to secure with a couple of clicks and all you'll need to type will be the username and the password which will be used to access it subsequently. You'll not encounter any troubles even if you have never had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to set up different usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You'll be able to see the protected folders easily either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you'll recognize them by their little padlock icons.
