A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and also a password. If you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. In case the login details are not correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

All of our shared website hosting services come with a really convenient tool that will permit you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be active immediately, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login credentials. You may create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be activated right away, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to enter the correct login details. In case various people must be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
