A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may look at its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a specific site or only for a specific subfolder based upon your preferences. As an illustration, if you are creating a new site and you do not want people to see it before it is 100% ready, you need to restrict the access to it as a whole, whereas if you want only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the website can be seen by anyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor types in aren't right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every single cloud hosting package deal which we offer, you will be able to shield any content that you have in your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password you want and you'll be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll 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 Hosting
You shall be able to create password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the function with a few clicks and without any problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will need to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anybody. Any password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
