A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire website or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username and a password. In case you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to view the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

All of our cloud website hosting packages include a really handy tool which will allow you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should 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 feature will be turned on at once, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login credentials. You may create or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be switched on instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the right login information. In cases where several individuals must be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
