A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire website or just a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to limit 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 is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

If you use any of our website hosting plans, you can set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We've included an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you could make a number of sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then 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 turned on instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to input the right login information. When various people must be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
