A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be a whole site or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything more. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you can make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We've built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be switched on right away, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to enter the right login information. When several individuals must be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
