A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or only a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. In case the login details aren't right, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our cloud hosting feature an exceptionally handy tool that'll permit you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select 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 enter the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The function will be activated straightaway, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login details. You could create or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to shield any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be enabled straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the correct login information. When a number of people have to be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
