A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals can look at its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a given site or only for a specific subfolder in accordance with your preferences. As an example, if you are creating a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is ready, you need to limit the access to it entirely, whereas if you need only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a certain folder, while the remainder of the website could be seen by anybody. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor inputs are not correct. Even a direct link to a file shall not work given that 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 that we offer, you will be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it provides the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include multiple 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 Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be enabled straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the accurate login information. In case various people must be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
