A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be an entire website or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area will take just a couple of clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything challenging - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be protected, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to make a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this function is active. If you want to turn off the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be activated straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to enter the correct login information. In cases where various people have to be able to open the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
