A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
All of our Linux website hosting come with a really useful tool which will allow you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that should be used to access the content in question. The function will be activated immediately, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if required. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be enabled immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to input the correct login details. When several people should be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
