A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username and a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

If you use any of our hosting plans, you'll be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can make several different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be turned on immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the right login info. In case several individuals should be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
