A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This may be a whole site or only a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and a password. In case you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything more. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site 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 shall take no more than a couple of clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account with us. You will not have to do anything challenging - you'll need to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be protected, and then to type the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login details, there will not be a problem to set up a variety of different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is active. If you'd like to disable the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to secure any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be activated right away, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to enter the correct login info. When several individuals must be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
