A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be an entire site or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical 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 prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you shall be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If required, you could make a number of different sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to protect any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be turned on straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login details. In case several people must be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
