A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. When 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 wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All of our website hosting plans include a really useful tool which will enable you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on instantly, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login credentials. You may set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure any content that you've 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'll not need to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the 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 in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be switched on right away, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to input the accurate login information. If several individuals must be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
