A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people may observe its content. This feature could be used for the primary folder of a particular site or exclusively for a certain subfolder in accordance with your preferences. For example, if you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's ready, you might want to limit the access to it completely, whereas if you want only some people to be able to access particular files, you could password-protect only a particular folder, while the rest of the Internet site can be seen by everybody. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs aren't right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every cloud web hosting package which we provide, you shall be able to shield any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you shall be all set to go. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Protecting any folder with a password will be very simple if you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to select the particular folder which you want to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll have to enter will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You'll not experience any problems even if you have never had a web hosting account before, since you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you'll be able to create different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so many people shall be able to access a certain folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you shall identify them by their little padlock icons.
