A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire website or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't 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 products, you shall be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have integrated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every protected folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not. When necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be enabled immediately, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder will have to enter the accurate login information. If a number of individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
