A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire site or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must type a username and a password. In case you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. When this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All our website hosting plans include a very useful tool that will enable you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will just have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be active right away, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login details. You can create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will 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 Control Panel it's part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be enabled instantly, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to input the accurate login details. When various individuals have to be able to access the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
