A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be a whole website or only one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting solutions, you can set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. If required, you can create a number of sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be turned on straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to enter the right login information. When a number of people have to be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
