A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. If you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't allowed to see the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you want 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 before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting plans, you will be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this type of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you could make a number of sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the correct login info. When a number of individuals must be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
