While most other sites use server scripts and some sites might store your custom password, this site use client script which means Nothing is transmitted to any server and your custom password always safe with you because you are the only one knows it
- None (use plaintext passwords) : The Apache httpd daemon will only accept plain text passwords on Windows, Netware and TPF.
- Crypt : DES-based algorithm. Accepted by all Unix HTTP servers, but not supported by the Apache httpd server on Windows, Netware and TPF. Note that only the first 8 characters of the password are used to form the password with this algorithm. If the supplied password is longer, the extra characters will be silently discarded.
- MD5 : The MD5 algorithm used by htpasswd is specific to the Apache software; passwords encrypted using it will not be usable with other Web servers.
- SHA-1 : Use SHA-1 encryption for passwords. Facilitates migration from/to Netscape servers using the LDAP Directory Interchange Format (ldif).
