A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you shall be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this type of matters. We have included a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. If needed, you could make a number of different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the right login details. In case various individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
