A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire website or just a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials are not right, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you will be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you may create several different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be activated at once, so anyone that attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to input the right login info. In case a number of people must be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
