A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must input a username as well as a password. In case you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you want to restrict 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 Shared Web Hosting

If you use any of our shared web hosting plans, you shall be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We've integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you may create several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded through 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'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be enabled instantly, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to input the accurate login details. When a number of people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
