A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be a whole site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must type a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. If the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing 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 products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you could make several different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You'll only need to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be activated immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the right login details. When a number of people have to be able to access the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
