A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole website or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username and a password. If you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single cloud website hosting plan that we provide, you will be able to shield any content which you have in your account with simply a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features the exact same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you'll be all set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to secure any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple 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 need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder must 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 will be all set. The protection will be activated instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login details. In cases where a number of individuals should be able to open exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
