A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and also a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything else. If the login credentials are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you want 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 Website Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every single website hosting package which we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with just a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you will be all set to go. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

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 which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you shall not need to write any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the web hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be enabled at once, so anybody who tries to access the recently secured folder will have to type in the correct login information. When several individuals have to be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
