A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details aren't right, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very useful if you need to restrict 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 Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud plans include a really convenient tool that will permit you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will just have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The function will be turned on right away, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login credentials. You may create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not have to input any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be turned on at once, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to enter the right login details. When a number of people should be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
