A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or only a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. When the login details aren't right, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you want 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 before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All of our Linux shared hosting come with a really useful tool that will allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be active right away, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You may create or remove many usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to secure any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be activated at once, so anybody who tries to access the freshly protected folder shall have to enter the correct login details. If a number of individuals have to be able to access the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
