A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole site or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
All of our shared web hosting services come with an exceptionally handy tool which will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two 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 select 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 the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The function shall be active immediately, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login information. You can create or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password shall be very easy if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to select the specific folder you would like to protect with a few mouse clicks and all you will need to input shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You will not encounter any complications even if you haven't had a hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you'll be able to create different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in exactly the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you will detect them by their compact padlock icons.
