A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or just a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting solutions, you will be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We have built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. When necessary, you can create several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be switched on immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to input the correct login info. If a number of individuals have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
