A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be an entire site or simply a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login details are not right, however, you shall see information that you are not permitted to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
If you use any of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've built in an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each 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 create several different sets of login details for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be really easy if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that's integrated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to choose the specific folder that you want to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll have to enter shall be the username and the password that will be used to access it afterwards. You'll not experience any difficulties even if you have never had a hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to activate the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to set up many usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the protected folders conveniently either in the same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
