A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or only one page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to look at the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every shared hosting package which we provide, you shall be able to protect any content which you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set to go. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You'll only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be turned on instantly, so anyone who tries to access the newly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login information. In case several people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
