A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be an entire website or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to input a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on 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
All of our Linux cloud service include a very handy tool that'll enable you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose 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 type in the username and the password which have to be used to access the content in question. The function shall be active straightaway, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login info. You may create or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Protecting any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to select the specific folder you'd like to secure with a few clicks and all you'll have to enter will be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You'll not encounter any troubles even if you have not had a web hosting account before, because you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same simple steps, you will be able to create different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so lots of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the secured folders easily either in the same section of the Control Panel or within the File Manager section where you'll recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
