A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. If you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each shared web hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have in your account with merely a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you shall be all set to go. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to add several 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 Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be turned on right away, so anybody who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login details. In case several individuals should be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
