A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or just a single page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must type in a username and a password. If you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
When you use any of our shared hosting
plans, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have included a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what's not. If required, you may create a number of different sets of login details for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
It will take a couple of mouse clicks to turn on the password protection function for any folder you have, if you use one of our semi-dedicated plans
. We have an incredibly effective tool, which has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people without experience. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get to manage your new account and once you log in and visit the Password Protection section, you will be able to pick the domain or subdomain that needs to be protected and then the particular folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You shall also see 2 boxes where you shall have to enter the login name and the password that will be required to access the folder in question and you'll be all set. By following the exact same steps, you will be able to set up several different login credentials for the very same folder to give several people their own username/password. All secured folders shall have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
