A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed only if a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people can check out its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a given Internet site or exclusively for a certain subfolder based on your preferences. For instance, if you are creating a new website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it completely, while if you need only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the Internet site can be seen by everyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor enters are not correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each cloud website hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with simply a few clicks. Because the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you shall be all set to go. A small padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add many 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
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be enabled instantly, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the right login details. If various people must be able to access the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
