A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or simply one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use any of our cloud web hosting products, you will be able to set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you can make a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to pick the specific folder you would like to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll need to enter will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later. You won't experience any complications even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, considering that you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to switch on the function. If you repeat the same simple steps, you shall be able to set up numerous usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the protected folders conveniently either in the very same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you will recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
