A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can view its content. This option could be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or just for a certain subfolder depending on the needs you have. As an example, if you are creating a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is ready, you should prohibit the access to it completely, while if you would like only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the website can be seen by anyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with every single cloud hosting package deal which we provide, you shall be able to shield any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set to go. A small padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be turned on immediately, so anyone that attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to type in the right login details. In case various people should be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
