A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or just one page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. When the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites within a website hosting
account with our company. You will not have to do anything complex - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be secured, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login details, there will not be a problem to make a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is active. If you wish to disable the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not have to write any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be turned on straightaway, so anyone that tries to access the recently protected folder shall have to enter the accurate login info. In case a number of individuals must be able to open the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
