Password Protected Directories
Learn how to make a safe and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be a whole website or only one page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to see 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 option is very handy if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area will take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites in a cloud website hosting
account with us. You'll not have to do anything challenging - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it must be secured, and then to type the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. When a number of people need their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is active. If you wish to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password shall be very easy if you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server
account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to pick the specific folder that you want to protect with a few mouse clicks and all you'll have to type will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later. You won't experience any difficulties even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, since you don't need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you will be able to set up various usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the protected folders very easily either in precisely the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you will detect them by their little padlock icons.
