A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This may be a whole website or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username as well as a password. In case you input the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting solutions, you can make password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have zero experience with such matters. We've built in an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to shield any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be enabled at once, so anybody who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to type in the correct login details. In cases where several people must be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
