A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or just a single page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. If you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each hosting plan which we offer, you will be able to secure any content which you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add several 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

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder should 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 shall be all set. The protection will be switched on right away, so anyone who attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to type in the correct login info. In case several people must be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
