A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or just a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must type a username as well as a password. In case you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. When this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All our Linux cloud packages feature an incredibly useful tool which will allow you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be active straightaway, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login information. You can set up or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be really easy if you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to pick the specific folder that you want to protect with a few clicks and all you'll have to enter will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You'll not encounter any complications even if you have never had a website hosting account before, considering that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to set up many usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the protected folders instantly either in the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you will detect them by their small padlock icons.
