A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be an entire website or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. If this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All our Linux shared hosting service
include an incredibly convenient tool that'll permit you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which must be used to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on at once, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login information. You could create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password will be easy if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server
account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to select the particular folder which you want to protect with a few mouse clicks and all you'll have to enter shall be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You will not encounter any difficulties even if you have not had a website hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to create many usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the protected folders very easily either in the exact same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you will identify them by their small padlock icons.
