A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire website or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our Linux shared hosting packages include a very useful tool that will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll just have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated straightaway, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login details. You can create or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if required. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be easy if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to pick the particular folder you'd like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you will have to enter shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it later. You won't experience any complications even if you have not had a website hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up various usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the protected folders at a glance either in the very same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you'll recognize them by their small padlock icons.
