If you are using our standard eXtend hosting packages, you can easily password protect a directory using the eXtend Control Panel to protect an area of your website from unauthorised access
Step 1 – Sign into your Watch the Dot Hosting Account
For instruction on how to do that, see this guide
Step 2 – Navigate to Web Tools
You can expand or collapse sections withinb your control panel using the +/- signs at the top of each section
Step 3 – Select your preferred PHP version
We recommend version 7, but if your website is incompatible with PHP 7 (older WordPress themes for example occasionally utilise functions that were removed in PHP version 7), you can step back to an earlier version.
You can sample our eXtend based web hosting on our hosting demo site at www.wtddemo.co.uk
