A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be an entire website or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username and a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite handy if you need 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's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use any of our cloud web hosting products, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within a matter of seconds. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you can create a number of sets of login credentials for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to pick the particular folder you'd like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you'll have to enter will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later. You won't experience any difficulties even if you have never had a website hosting account before, since you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to set up numerous usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so many people shall be able to access a certain folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you shall recognize them by their little padlock icons.
