A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be an entire Internet site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All of our Linux cloud web hosting plans include an exceptionally handy tool that will allow you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be activated straightaway, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login details. You could create or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be turned on immediately, so anybody who tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to input the right login info. In case a number of people have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
