Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they mean for your website?
If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function can be useful in a number of cases - if only some individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
When you use any of our website hosting
solutions, you'll be able to set up password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have built in an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you can create several different sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server
account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to enable the feature with a few mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you try to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will need to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders with ease.
