A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be a whole website or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. If the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you wish to prohibit 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 Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every website hosting package that we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it has the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be ready. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include 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 Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content you have uploaded 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 will not have to input any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anybody who tries to access the recently protected folder shall have to type in the accurate login information. When various people must be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
