A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This could be an entire website or simply one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type in 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 additional. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you are not authorized to view the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every shared hosting package deal which we provide, you'll be able to secure any content which you have within your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be switched on instantly, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the right login info. In cases where several individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
