Managing a Hosted Web Site shows how to set up a web site on a host's server and perform common server tasks. Working in two web hosting utilities, cPanel and Plesk, as well as in a custom control panel, author Ray Villalobos explores purchasing a domain, setting up FTP accounts, and configuring web mail. The course also explains setting up password protection, creating a MySQL database, and working with subdomains.
Just a couple of reasons why you might need to protect information on your server. Perhaps there are some documents that you want to be available to some users but not others. You might be working on some secret new designs and want to keep them away from prying eyes. There are a lot of ways to do this; you can build a logging system with PHP or some other scripting language. That can be complicated and time-consuming. Thankfully most Web hosts provide a quick way to set up simple password protected directories. In preparation for this, I've created a clients directory with an image called splash.jpg that I've placed in each of our domains using FTP.
If you have any questions about using FTP, make sure you checkout the movies on this course on setting up and using FTP. In the following movies I'm going to show you how to protect the folder and create a username and password with each of our different control panels.
