A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be a whole site or simply a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each and every hosting package deal that we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have in your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers the same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have within 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 that you would like and you shall be set. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add several 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 Hosting
It will take a couple of mouse clicks to turn on the password protection function for any folder that you have, when you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting services. We have an incredibly helpful tool, which has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with zero experience. It is a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get to manage your new account and when you log in and check out the Password Protection section, you will be able to pick the domain or subdomain which needs to be secured and then the exact folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You will also see 2 boxes where you will need to enter the login name and the password that'll be needed to access the folder in question and you'll be ready. By following exactly the same steps, you will be able to create many different login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders shall have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
