A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't authorized to view the content. If this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't 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 products, you'll be able to make password-protected areas effortlessly even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We have integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you could make a number of 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'll be able to shield any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection shall be turned on straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to type in the right login info. If several individuals must be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
