A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be an entire Internet site or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login details aren't right, however, you'll see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting products, you shall be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've included a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can create several different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to secure any content you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in 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 right away, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to input the right login details. In cases where various people should be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
