A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each hosting package deal which we provide, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you shall be set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to include 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 Servers

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